The Whales: Blue, Finback, Humpback, Minke, North Atlantic Right, Pilot
When to Go: March to December
Similar to Long Island, New York (farther on down the list), the nutrient and food rich waters of the Delaware Bay attract a great quantity of whales to the coast of Cape May, NJ throughout the year—with a vast majority of whales being seen March to December as they pass from farther North. To do whale-watching in Cape May, you don’t have to leave the beach if you don’t want to, but for the most trusted tour, you go with Cape May Whale Watcher, which is a 3-hour expedition on the bay.
Address: Cape May, New Jersey
